Grounded, Moving, Real, and Refreshing
So grateful to have found Nicole Taylor and her fresh, unique and grounded perspective on what it means to pause - especially given that I’ve found her in these incredible moments of unmasking all of the unprocessed and unresolved systemic racism in America. Looking at this through the lens of spiritual practice feels so critical to me; at the end of the day we don’t know much, and staying close and inside the inquiry process feels so true and so right. Thank you, Nicole.
